Error 0x80040707 while updating bios on Intel Motherboard

Hi All,

Recently I upgraded my pc, and having problems.

Motherboard - Intel D865PERL
Processor - Intel 3 E GHZ HT
Graphic Card - PNY Nvedia GeForce FX 5500 128MB AGP 8X
Ram - CORSAIR DDRAM 512MB|64X64 VS DDR400 PC3200
OS - Windows XP Professional

Motherboard and Ram are 1 year old, upgraded Processor and Graphic Card.

When I try to update bios or driver using Intel Motherboard original CD, it gives me error

- Internal Error
- Error # 0x80040707
- ebiossup.dll

Any idea, what could be the problem ?

I am really stuck with this problem, trying to resolve since last 3-4 days but not able to.

I really appreciate your help.

I tried but still same problem.

Is it windows problem or Hardware problem ?

I am afraid that is it anything to do with XP Professional SP 2 ?

I really appreciate your help.

Tough call.

Since you are running the newer Windows based BIOS updater, then it can be a Windows problem. Look around to see if they offer a DOS based updater.

Did you buy your PC instead of building it? If you try to put an Intel BIOS on a Dell or Gateway it will not work. But that doesn't seem to be it. It does seem to be a Windows error however.

If worst comes to worst, and you can't fix it, here are some new motherboards:
